Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles 2010

France » Burgundy » Olivier Leflaive » Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles 2010


Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc Les Setilles (family garden) has become one of the most popular items in the entire Frederick Wildman portfolio. Year in/ year out this wine represents impeccable quality and unsurpassed value in the French wine category. This wine exceeds expectations of even the most discriminating of palates.

Terroir: Les Setilles is sourced from vineyards within the communes of Puligny Montrachet and Meursault, with each village representing roughly half of the final blend. Grapes are sourced from multiple plots within each village in an effort to maximize complexity of the final wine.

Vinification: Vintage consistency is the goal with this wine so the blending of lots and aging technique will vary according. Roughly 60% of the wine is aged in Allier oak, only 10% of which is new. The remaining 40% of the wine is aged in stainless steel to preserve clean varietal character.

Additional Information

The 2010 Les Setilles is, as usual, a stunning value from Burgundy. The wine is medium in body with notes of green apple, pear, mineral and just a touch of smoky oak on the finish. Typical of it's 50% Meursault, a backdrop of roasted nut shines throughout.

Varietal: Chardonnay: 100%

    "This bright, crisp, citrusy white is a blend of grapes from vineyards in Meursault and Puligny Montrachet; it's an excellent entry-level Burgundy from negociant Maison Olivier Leflaive"

    "This bargain-priced Chardonnay-based Burgundy is a superb introduction to the white wines of the region. The grapes come from just outside the confines of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, between the villages and the road, and hence are entitled only to Bourgogne Blanc appellation. But dont let its lowly pedigree fool you. This is real Burgundy with apple-like flavors, a little creaminess and spice. Buy it by the case because, despite its down market origins, Leflaives Les Stilles ages beautifully--I had a 2006 last year that was marvelous--and prices for Burgundy are on their way up."

    "A pretty citrus and green fruit nose combines with detailed, racy, intense and crisp flavors that possess an attractive sense of energy before ending in a delicious finish of moderate depth"
